"The Evolution of Response" by Aikido Sensei Miles Kessler
(8 Votes, average 5.00 out of 5)
"The Evolution of Response" by Miles Kessler Sensei, the founder and director of Integral Dojo in Tel Aviv, Israel. An Evolutionary Aikido and Dharma Teacher, and a dear spiritual friend. Miles spent a few hours in Zurich, on his way to teach in a Europe. It was a beautiful spring day, and we took a walk by the lake. I asked Miles to talk a little about Aikido. I had no idea... Aikido is indeed a Martial Art, just like I already knew, but it is also a lot more. In Aikido, you shift your perspective to where you are actually at one with the other person. Aikido happens in relationship. It is about Awakened Relationship, eventually creating an awake and aware system. A system with its own intelligence. It is like awakened inspired musical jam session, creating an inter subjective space... Integral Dojo Tel Aviv; The Integral Dojo is a center committed to supporting individuals and the culture they live in towards greater growth and integration through practices engaging the body, mind, heart and spirit. The center offers daily Aikido classes, Weapons class, Nia, Meditation, day retreats, open talks and workshops from renown teachers from all over the world.

Integral Dojo Israel - A Great place to create the future
Spring 2012 - My spiritual friend Aikido Sensei Miles Kessler, the director of the new Tel Aviv Integral Dojo, came to Switzerland for a short teaching tour. We took a walk by the lake of Zurich enjoying the beautiful day, talking about Integral, the future of humanity, and the Integral Dojo in Tel Aviv. We decided to video for awakenedTV a short introduction to Aikido.
So, me and Miles got ready for the talk, the camera was rolling, and... my son Reuven was passing by the lake, and joined us for a few minutes. A few days before, both of my sons came back from a 5 month study in Israel. Both took the time to visit Integral Dojo activities in Tel Aviv.
The conversation with Reuven turned to be a good example for the good work done in Israel by Miles and the Integral Dojo.
The future coming ahead with the open mined young generation, and the teaching by the older guys, planting the seeds, looks great.

Spirit in Action - The Future Generation
   
Integrate and embrace - an excerpt from an awakenedTV talk with Sensei Miles Kessler.
Aikido Sensei, Miles Kessler, is a Dharma Teacher, and the director of the Integral Dojo, Tel-Aviv. Miles is also a good spiritual friend. On his latest teaching tour, he visited Zurich, and I was lucky to enjoy a short walk with him, on a sunny afternoon...
We were talking about life, evolution, the future, spiritual practice, music, and of course Aikido. Someone happened to have had an awakenedTV video camera... :) I will share it all!
This video clip is an excerpt of our conversation. Miles explain the need to integrate levels of development. Not only accept but embrace and integrate. As an example he ask me to tell him about my feeling when going to a synagog.

Awakening to The Uncommon Path - Chapter 9 - The First Insight - Renounce Conditioned Motives
Your awakening can be expressed with great ease, after you create new structures in your subjective consciousness. This can enable you, ridding yourself of all oppinions formerly accepted, even if never before objectified. Bringing the influences of concealed conditioning to your attention is one half of this task. Then comes the "letting go" of these influences.
This is a process of identification and renunciation.This can be done by bringing the unhealthy-ego into the light of awareness, where it cannot survive. This create the space needed for your awakening to flourishes.
The First Insight contains an exercise that is based on Ken Wilber's 4 Quadrants, comprising of several hundred statements. Each statement brings you to a point of objectivity on the possible presence of concealed conditioning in everyday circumstances. All major aspects of life are addressed, including: spirituality, family, relationships, career and money.

Awakening to The Uncommon Path
   
Creating Dynamic Development and Harmony in the Classroom
Their work is about developing the individual and collective "consciousness" of a class of children. Nick Drummond and Joan Berland developed a learning program based on recognizing consciousness as always being a primary part of our experience. Although it is not easily seen or widely recognized, it is something that can be pointed to, described and developed. "As educators, this means learning how to give attention to the interior as well as the exterior dimension of the classroom environment..."

Awakening to The Uncommon Path - Chapter 7 - Awakening Conversations
Words are the bridge between the the unmanifest and the manifest worlds.
It is you who has the power to create this bridge, and it is a tremendous power.
As we learn and understand, we have the a choice. The choosing faculty is to be used also here, and by using the right words we can create or degrade the conditions for awakened living and authentic joy.
Conversations can determine your destiny, and chapter 7 will show you how powerful words are.
Many so-called 'meaningful' conversations are nothing more than the ego in one person talking with itself in another person. This chapter provides dozens of ways and lots of examples to help you identify the presence of the unhealthy-ego in everyday conversations. The purpose is to show you where concealed conditioning is alive and thriving in dialogue so that you can transcend and include its influences there.
Our video dialog will give you the much needed worning signs, to avoid falling into the small ego trap. You will learn what are the favorite topics of the ego-mind so that you can be more mindfull before you step into that mine field. You will learn to identify the ego in another person as it speaks to you, and most important how to trancend conditioned conversation in your relevant relationships.
Last but not least, Chapter 7 will show you ways to empower your speech and listening with true compation. You will learn the difference between true awakened compation to idiot compation...
